An Australian man is walking from Perth to Sydney dressed as a Star Wars character to raise money for charity.

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA - In  a country, far, far, away... an Australian man is channeling the Force.
Jacob French has dressed up as an imperial stormtrooper from the movie Star Wars, all in the name of charity.


He plans to walk from Perth in Western Australia, all the way to Sydney on the country's east coast.

The trek is more than 4,000 kilometers, or 2,500 miles.

French says he aims to raise $50,000 Australian dollars for the Starlight Foundation, to help seriously ill children.

May the Force be with him.
